Webinar Description

Advanced Process Control (APC) allows for optimizing of kraft mill performance to maximize productivity while minimizing operating costs. The sustainable success of an APC requires that the system provide true value to operators so they are compelled to apply the control rather than be regulated to do so. This is achieved when good data and engineering principles are applied to enable control beyond human capacity, allowing the operation to get as much capability out of existing equipment as possible.  

During the webinar, we will cover the following for the Chemical Recovery Cycle:

  • Key measurements used in APC
  • Example results of advanced process models
  • Value of optimizing key performance indicators

[NOTE: The webinar will be in the English language.
